Abstract

The product of agmatine oxidation catalyzed by Pisum sativum L. copper amine oxidase has been identified by means of one- and two-dimensional 1H-NMR spectroscopy to be N-amidino-2-hydroxypyrrolidine. This compound inhibits competitively rat nitric oxide synthase type I and type II (NOS-I and NOS-II, respectively) and bovine trypsin (trypsin) activity, values of Ki being (1.1 ± 0.1) × 10-5 M (at pH 7.5 and 37.0°C), (2.1 ± 0.1) × 10-5 M (at pH 7.5 and 37.0°C), and (8.9 ± 0.4) × 10-5 M (at pH 6.8 and 21.0°C), respectively. Remarkably, the affinity of N-amidino-2-hydroxypyrrolidine for NOS-I, NOS-II and trypsin is significantly higher than that observed for agmatine and clonidine binding. Furthermore, N-amidino-2-hydroxypyrrolidine and agmatine are more efficient than clonidine in displacing [3H]clonidine (= 1.0 × 10-8 M) from specific binding sites in heart rat membranes, values of IC50 being (1.3 ± 0.4) × 10-9 M and (2.2 ± 0.4) × 10-8 M, respectively (at pH 7.4 and 37.0°C).
